The new Audi A4 has been revealed in saloon and Avant estate guise as Audi renews attempts to battle the BMW 3 Series. Development is complete on the all-new Audi A4 as the German car giant reveals full details on its BMW 3 Series rivaling saloon ahead of an official debut at the Frankfurt Motor Show in September. however to stay the opposition on its toes, Audi has also pulled the wraps off the big-booted A4 Avant estate, the first time both models have been revealed at the same time.

Audi A4 2016 Interior and space 

Both performance and economy are assisted by the A4’s new front-wheel drive MLB Evo platform that helps shed 120kg in weight, whereas adding 21mm to the length and 12mm to the distance compared to the outgoing saloon version. Despite the increase in length for each the A4 saloon and A4 Avant, boot capability is barely up by 15 litres on the Avant to 505 litres whereas the luggage space remains a similar on the Saloon at 480 litres. What Audi has done with the increase in size is give more head and knee room for passengers within.

New Audi A4 2016 engines

Diesel engines are set to be the most popular with UK buyers and the new A4 will use 1.6 and 2.0-litre diesels that are either brand new or heavily revamped for the new car. One of the four diesel models on offer are going to be the new 148bhp 2.0-litre TDI Ultra, which will be capable of 74.3mpg and CO2 emissions of 95g/km, making it free to tax. On average, the fuel economy of the new A4 engine range is up 21% despite power gains of around 25%.

The Audi A4 will be available with three petrol engines, one of which will be a new 148bhp 1.4-litre TFSI that can return 57.6mpg and CO2 emissions of 114g/km. The fastest models in the range will be diesels though, with 3.0-litre TDI V6 engines available with either 215bhp or 268bhp. All new A4s will be available with either a six-speed manual gearbox or a new seven-speed S tronic automatic.

There have been rumors of two hybrid versions of the new A4 but so far there hasn’t been any official word on any. However, it looks likely that an A4 e-tron will follow a little while after the new car goes on sale. We expect it to use the same 1.4-litre TFSI petrol engine and electric motor as the A3 e-tron.

New Audi A4 Avant price and release date

The Audi A4 avant and saloon are being unveiled at the Frankfurt Motor Show in September 2015. The saloon will go on sale in the second half of 2015, with the avant likely to hit UK roads within the first half of 2016.

UK costs won’t be disclosed till the Audi A4 Avant’s debut; however it was substantially more expensive than the car it replaces. Expect the range to begin off at around £26,000, rising up to the mid-£30,000 to £40,000 mark for the top-of-the-line diesel and e-tron hybrid models severally.
